Well Fed, Plenty Satisfied, and Exquisitely Stuffed are buffs granted to the player depending on the food item consumed. The buff slightly improves all stats (listed below). Additionally, in Expert Mode, life regeneration will only be fully effective while the player is under the effects of one of these buffs. This lasts for 4 to 48 minutes (depending on the item used), but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop versiontModLoader version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console versionNintendo Switch), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version).

Only one of these buffs may be active at a time and therefore they do not stack. The buff that is most recently applied takes priority.

Causes[]

The complete list of food items that grant these buffs is listed here.

Tips[]

  • On pre-1.4 platforms, this buff is simpler, but still extremely useful as it is easy to obtain, extremely versatile, and has a long duration.
    • During Halloween, Pumpkins for Pumpkin Pie are plentiful, and even at other times the Dryad can supply Pumpkin Seeds to farm them. Other food items can be crafted or picked up from varied sources.
    • Alternatively, a modest amount of fishing for other purposes can provide enough fish to keep a player well fed despite the shorter duration.
  • Most players should carry a stack of "food" items, and try to keep the buff always active. The movement bonus alone would make that worthwhile, but in Expert Mode food is even more important, as it is required to regenerate health normally. In any mode, the small but broad boost to combat abilities comes in handy.
  • Use this buff before boss fights or venturing into dangerous areas to gain a cheap and easy advantage. The movement buff makes it worthwhile even for exploring and mining.
  • On 1.4, the more powerful versions generally have shorter duration but are still fairly accessible.

Trivia[]

  • The Cooked Marshmallow is currently the only item to have the same duration on all platforms.
  • The stars depicted in the buff icons may be the Michelin Stars, a rating system given to high level restaurants.
